As a sequel of “Acqua” (Water) exhibition, Brazilian artist Alexandre E. presents “Elements” to include AR (Air), TERRA (Earth) & FUEGO (Fire) at the South End’s Piano Craft Gallery 793 Tremont ST, opening Friday June 1st weekends through June 24th.
Over 40 paintings will comprise the Project “ELEMENTS”. “ACGUA” portrayed representations of “Water” and this exhibition will continue with depictions of “AR”, “Fuego” and “Terra” (Air, Fire and Earth).
"Elements is a tribute to my love of nature and my desire to depict it through my Art. “AR” (Air), is comprised of “oil on canvas” paintings some of which are multidimensional and unframed with three separate canvases fixed at the top to create a layered effect which allows each to move apart on the wall, literally in the air. Others in the “AR” collection are painted using a ‘dripping’ technique where I painted the artwork using the air in my creative expression. Fuego (Fire), also in Oil on Canvas and some pieces using acrylic paint to emphasize the chemical imbalance. I had never used so many bright, strong and hot colors in my art career so it was very new and different for me."
Alexandre Emmanuel was born in Olinda, a city on the northeastern coast, in Pernambuco State of Brazil. He began to paint at an early age and by the time he was thirteen, he was already selling his artwork.
After graduating from the University of Pernambuco with a degree in Architecture and Urban Studies, Alexandre completed a degree in painting at the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Recife. Soon thereafter, his interest in combining architecture with the visual arts led him to create a series of murals which were well received by local critics, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. They included works at several hotels, resorts, schools and children's stores.

Among them were four in his home state of Pernambuco: Tudo (All) Pernambuco State Convention Center; Panorama, Boa Vista Theatre Hall;Vida (Life), Justice Memorial of Pernambuco; Beberibe River, Justice Memorial of Pernambuco. In the international arena, his work has been shown at the International Language Academy in Bournemouth, England; the Friendship Force in Atlanta, Georgia and Fort Meyers, Florida; and in Boston, Massachusetts where he has lived for almost 15 years, exhibitions entitled Ambiguity, the Seven Deadly Sins, Black & White, the Bailarina En Mi Vida, Acgua, and now Elements.
